Lesser Fish-Eagle

Icthyophaga humilis (Müller & Schlegel, 1841)

The Lesser Fish Eagle (Ichthyophaga humilis) is a species of large fish eagle found in the Indian Subcontinent, primarily in the foothills of the Himalayas. There have been some stray reports from Gujarat and Central India and in more recent times from the Kaveri river valley in southern India. The distribution in southern India is not yet confirmed. It is also found in small numbers in other countries in south west Asia. Source: Wikipedia
